Heir needs to invite the potential spouse.
Ah good to know, I still have plenty options but good to know for later generations.

I've just started my own 4x4 dynasty and I'm almost at the point where I need to shop around for a wife for my first heir.
I wonder does the heir need to be the one to bring the spouse in or can I have anyone I wish do it?

Heirs are the only ones allowed to invite potential spouses into the household.

Now my own question: I know the rules say that you can't take things from the old world into the new one. Does this mean, however, that if you have vacation/future home, do you have to jettison that and the contents too? Or can stuff at vacation/future homes stay there?

Full disclosure :) - I do have a future home, and I was thinking of doing a trip there before the final move, and just leaving some stuff from present time in the future home. That way, if I decide to take another trip to the future in another neighborhood, there will be some skilling objects/books already there to use. Is that permissible, or no?

The whole point of moving is having the heir starting fresh in a new world, funds set back to 4000 after house purchase.  If the moving heir already has a future home with stuff, it just doesn't feel like a fresh start.

My vote is no, not permissible.  Let's see what Metro has to say about this.

Being curious, as I haven't done a dynasty move town yet, just what will happen to the travel/future worlds in a new neighborhood?
Will they continue in the original timeline and keep the properties bought or become erased of all changes? I know that the future can be reset manually though.
Also I start to wonder if Marian and I are the only two experiencing the no skill opps glitch from the ITF expansion as many seem to go smoothly with it, or is everyone relying on rabbit holes/special opps since then?
I really miss the ITF new features and still feel a little sad not being able to use them in all dynasties as they all require opps :(

New addition to rules:

Any future/vacation homes need to be sold along with their contents before moving to a new world.

A lot of people are having the same problem, hopefully EA will fix the no skill opps glitch in a future patch.

Fair enough, Nutella, and thanks for the update! I was already ambivalent, but now I can definitely start shedding things in preparation of moving worlds.

Also, wow KRae! Nice job all around, and again a huge congratulations!

I've run into a bug with my male founder and the twin of my heir, both went on a vacation together to acquire a vacation home for this town and also to pick up some relics and maybe some parts of  the needed collections.
When they returned home from vacation their needs were maxed out, which isn't strange since they have a motive mobile but their needs never goes down at all since they returned!
They do age normally thankfully, so I wonder can I keep them that way? That bug might never go away for as far as I know.

If not I do have a save before their vacation and I can always redo it since it is only the number of trips that are restricted...

Well, a ray of hope for those who like to play Into the Future.

Skill Opportunities do still happen, just have a ridiculously low chance now.

My third generation's spouse got an opportunity related to logic (Becoming More Logical), but she's a sculptor by profession.

I'm still going to adjust my plans to limit self-employment now, but I wanted to let everyone know.

It's miniscule, but it's there! /hurray

I received one skill opp as well, in cooking, before uninstalled ITF, when a non-heir sim was hibernating in her chamber. I found it arrived at a time when I wasn't focusing on her and she obviously couldn't do anything about phone calls. When they receive skill calls there are usually three scenarios, the first is answering the phone, shouting and cancelling it without my interfere (this happened to my other files before quite a lot and somehow it's fixed in later patches I guess); the second is I ignore call and nothing pops up and the third is leaving the phone ringing all time - I suspect this way it has a chance of getting opp but I am not sure, sometimes it'd stop ringing mid-way. Still I've decided to leave ITF alone as I've planned too many ambition careers but I really wish they could fix it as I miss the clothes and indoor plants! I doubt it though now that the last expansion is out.

Well done, congrats KRae on been the first one finishing up your 4x4 Dynasty.  Also thanks for sharing your stats, what a great idea on the naming theme!  ;D

Out of curiosity what did your founders Tacoma and Sequim Washington do in the beginning for money, like what careers, skills and so forth did they do to bring in the money for the household?  ;)

Sequim was in the business career up to level 8 and quit. They both collected and shared gardening. One had the gardening skill and planted and fertilized while the other did not have the skill and harvested so no skill challenges were achieved. She, Tacoma, learned up to level 7 reading at the library and then just planted all the special seeds that were collected. The gardening station allows two harvests per day of those money trees and they started investing in buildings and properties as soon as possible.

Can founders share careers?

Specifically, I'm looking at heir #4's future wife learning and self-employing alchemy, but that's already been used by one of the founders of world 1.

I think that as long as you aren't planing on using it for an unique career for one of the heirs as many sims as you like can have it.

Margerita is correct.  As long as alchemy isn't one of your heirs or future heirs "unique" max career, you can share them.
